    He mainly uses a Big Muff for distortion, and gets the clean/distortion blend by splitting his signal to two amps.
     
  3. Just what i thought. But like Time is running out it sounds like some synth wibe going on to, it´s more like some synth with a little bit of dist... But Hysteria its more like Fuzz/dist with a little bit of something else.. whether that is a synth or not.. The only effect i got this moment is Boss ODB-3.. Am i right about the synth thing or? if so wich synth would be best to get to do the job?

    If you do a search on Chris on this forum, you'll find some threads talking about his effects etc. Someone had a shot of his pedal board, and I'm certain he had an Akai Deep Impact on there for synth stuff.
     
  5. That must be a fairly old pedalboard shot, I saw them on CD:UK recently (doing Hysteria) and if pedal board looked huge, maybe a meter across!

    :eek:


    Mind, Matt's looked even bigger.......
     
  6. The synth-effect on the " Time is running out " song is not the bassguitar b.t.w, allthough they make it look like so in the video.

    Chriss uses a " Virus Indigo " for it.
